rant about fanwars
I’ve seen this tumblr post that’s like “EXO’s worst song is better than BTS’ best” and it’s like… why hate on other groups to uplift your faves? Why can’t you do that without tearing down/shitting on other groups’ songs/music/hard work… like correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think EXO would be happy with their so called “fans” (yes, i firmly believe that you’re not a good fan of your fave if you shit on other groups?? whats the point??) for talking shit about other groups.
NOT TO SAY THAT ARMYS DON’T DO THE SAME THING and I’ve seen like 7 billion posts calling out armys (because yeah some (a LOT) of us really highkey need to be put in their place) but I don’t know like… just because some shit fans shit on your group doesn’t mean you fight fire with fire. This goes both ways: if you’re a BTS “fan” that shits on EXO, unfollow me. Our boys wouldn’t want that, I swear on it.
ALSO THIS DOESN’T MEAN ALL EXO-LS ARE SHITTY - THIS ISN’T EVEN REALLY ABOUT EXO-LS VS ARMYS IT’S ABOUT FANWARS IN GENERAL. I’m just using this example of this specific post because it’s the most recent negative thing I’ve seen - that, and I follow I’d say about 300x the number of BTS blogs than EXO blogs, so seeing this BTS hate post startled me as 1) the people I follow are usually multifandom just with BTS as their main group and 2) they usually don’t shit on any groups.
I’m not saying this because I don’t stan EXO and am an avid army (I have 0 hatred for EXO, their music is cool and i support their songs and stuff) I’m saying this because i’m tired as hell of the fanwars they’re so pointless.
Also this reminds me - that ARMY that made that bullshit block list on twitter about EXO-LS is disowned. ARMY card revoked - what kind of dumb shit is that? Blocking people for liking different groups? Stay pressed.
Like… do you think that you’re gonna get a cookie for being mean about people who don’t know that you exist on behalf of more people who don’t know that you exist??? That’s not how it works - all that happens is that you get pressed over something that honestly shouldn’t impact your life in any way at all. I understand the need to defend your faves, also, if people attack them, but honestly that makes you just as bad as them.
Is it okay to get annoyed at people talking shit about your favorite singers/groups/celebrities? Yes, it is. People tend to express displeasure over opinions that don’t match theirs, and, not to mention, attacking other celebs is something inflammatory in the first place. Actually acting on that annoyance to clap back? It’s unnecessary. Block ‘em. Out of sight, out of mind. Follow more blogs that rep your loves.
And this is, yes, hypocritical since I made this post after seeing that x’s worst is better than y’s best post for the nth time but that’s kind of a catalyst, honestly. I just unfollowed the blog that reblogged that, though, because what’s…the point. What’s the point in continuing to see content that I disagree with? I’m no masochist.
Just…I dunno. Live your own life, y’all. Quit with the immaturity and random hatred, it’s not okay. It’s also totally useless and doesn’t benefit anyone, at all, in any way.
